I couldn't agree more.

<rant subject="off-topic syntax rant of the decade">
Personally I think that RDF/XML doesn't help, it's too hard to write  
by hand. None of the other syntaxes for RDF triples really have the  
stamp of legitimacy. I think that's something that could really help  
adoption, the the same way that strict XHTML, in the early 1990's  
wouldn't have been so popular with people (like me) who just wanted to  
bash out some text in vi.
